The best thing I am finding out about my Comet is that the regular maintenance parts are very inexpensive, used in many other Fords, and are easy to replace. This pump and filter replacement took 15 minutes and 2 tools.
I could smell gas whenever I drove and the mileage was awful in this car. When I was changing the exhaust manifold, I noticed gas really dripping fast from the pump. The gas actually cleaned the grime off of one section of the pump where it was gushing out.
All pretty and doubled my gas mileage!
